Strategy

Avingdon is a boutique investment and advisory business with an exclusive focus on the UK student accommodation asset class.

We provide integrated and bespoke investment solutions on a standalone advisory basis or as part of strategic and joint venture partnering arrangements centred on capital deployment programmes, predominantly with private equity firms, family offices, specialist fund managers and institutions who are either new market entrants or existing investor/developers.

We specialise in structuring and operating through carefully aligned and incentivised partnering arrangements that enable both parties to benefit from enhanced investment capabilities. As part of these initiatives, we develop and implement highly focused and versatile investment strategies. These are supported by our extensive deal sourcing network and uniquely tailored value-add advisory services that realise the full potential of assets, helping to deliver robust and resilient performance.

As a niche business, we have an innate understanding of the UK student accommodation sector and provide clients and partners with a UK-wide strategic outlook combined with local expertise.

We adopt a research-led, proactive approach to our activities and are not afraid to adopt a contrarian stance where we feel specific markets are misunderstood and development/investment opportunities are underappreciated.

We understand the challenges of originating and executing development and investment transactions and the complexities involved in unlocking intrinsic value and maximising risk-adjusted returns. Our investment activities typically target strategically located urban development sites and existing operational assets where there is the potential to extract and crystallise significant embedded value.
